    Stumpjumper FSR Comp Carbon 29 weight?

    Anyone of you own this 29er? How much does it weight?

    I am looking for the one without the brain shock, in size Medium.

    Thanks.

    Having recently ridden the amazing but way-out-of-my-price-range S-works Stumpy FSR 29er I was curious about this myself and the only specific info I could find was at this link:

    2012 Specialized Actual Weights Mountain Bikes and 29ers - Bike Rumor

    The caption below the picture states 29lbs 14oz for a large "regular" Stumpjumper 29 (sans pedals). But I'm confused as to which model that actually is since it has a non-brain Fox shock - which the Comp and EVO models have (although this shock looks to have a Kashima coating), a blacklight command post (which the comp does not have) and the neon yellow color scheme of the EVO (the comp carbon is satin carbon/charcoal/silver in the US). The fork also looks like a Rockshox, which comes on the EVO as well. Makes me think it's not a Comp model. Not sure what that means for a weight comparison.

    That bike looks a whole lot like the SJ FSR 29r EVO. The Comp Carbon is quite a different bike.
    FWIW I should have mine by Friday, I'll weight it then and report back

    For those of you that ride one, how does it climb? I am a middle ring/ big ring hammer head. If you see a guy flying past you on a big chainring during a climb, it will likely be me.

    I like the epic carbon alot, but thought that it was kind of holding me back on the decent. I am not a good downhiller, so normally need to depend on a bike with trail /AM geometry and suspensions to help me shed the downhill part. Hoping something like the SJ 29 will do just that.

    I just got mine a couple weeks ago. Size xl with a couple upgrades and tubeless weighed 27.1 on the bike shop scale. I'm pretty excited about that. It will be under 27 when I'm done with the upgrades!

    I'm very interested in your outcome as I just ordered a 2011 model in alum with the brain but i'm having second thoughts...

    I'm wondering if specialized removed the brain issue off the 2012 model because the 2011 model had issues with the older brain system or did they do it to just change things up a bit...

    I might rather go with the 2012 carbon model with the auto sag instead... I have 2012 XTR components that I took off another bike I sold and I'm going to install them in which ever of the two bikes I get...

    The 2011 has a bottom bracket that works perfectly with the xtr bottom crank but the 2112 model has the PF30, OS press-in bearing that doesn't, so I probably wont change it yet if I get the 2012...

    The diff in price between the two bikes is about $450.00 more for the carbon...

    It's just NICE to have a carbon frame...

    Decisions, Decisions man.....

    There are still some models with Brain shocks. It just happens the Carbon Comp models do not, but I believe the Carbon Expert versions do.

    No Brain means you may need to do some lever flipping to get the pedaling characteristics you need, but usually also means less cost to own, as you don't need to send the shock back to Specialized for service.

    As far as the PF30 bottom bracket goes, a $30 adapter will allow you to run your XTR cranks.

    Wheels Mfg - BB 30 Shims

    One more thing to note - the 2012 models also get a 142x12 rear end for a little extra stiffness.

    Your link to the BB30 adapter says that PF30 ( different from BB30) wont work and requires a different crank.

    That looks like an EVO and it has the command post which adds a lot of weight. I heard the command post by itself is 2 lbs

    Totally stock with Straitline pedals (500+grams) my 2012 large carbon comp 29 came in at 29.2 lbs ( on a legal postal scale) Took it back apart for a few part swaps. More for personal fit than weight.
    Enjoy every ride!

    That's pretty impressive, considering that's probably a little lighter than my Sultan w/ENVE AM wheels.

    Any ride reports on the 29er fsr comp carbon with no brain?...Keep hearing not-so-great-stuff about the brain and I don't mind flipping a pro-pedal lever...like the carbon and the 29er wheels...though I've only tried in a parking lot so far.

    2013 FSR Expert Carbon 29er

    My large sized 2013 Stumjumper FSR Expert Carbon 29 weighed 28.6 pounds with XTR 970 pedals, tubeless and Stan's. Just upgraded wheels to Roval Control Trail SL with the carbon rims and now it weighs in exactly at 28.00 lbs. I even added more stans to both wheels. Oh yeah, that includes my light mount and bottle cage as well.

    I got my '13 SJ FSR Comp 29er down to 28lb 4 oz after swapping wheels and cassette. Planning on swapping bars/stem/pedals/cranks all before spring. It's gonna be as light or lighter than most of Carbon SJ's but I still wish I had the carbon frame.

    What size frame? How does it feel after swapping out the other items?

    I have a medium frame. I also upgraded cranks, rear cassette, and bars. The dropper negated some of that weight but it still weighs less than before. With a new set of hoops and tubeless you feel like your bike it supercharged. Feels totally different.
